Following the recent unveiling of the PlayStation 4 Slim and PlayStation 4 Pro some might start feeling Sony would ditch the standard PlayStation 4 anytime soon, well, Sony remains true to its fans and is preparing to release the 4.00 update. The 4.00 update is live, and the PlayStation Blog has a list of the biggest upcoming features:
- New system backgrounds
- A generally cleaned up (but not drastically different) home menu.
- A new Quick Menu (press and hold the PlayStation button) will only take up part of the screen and allow you to customize what information it shows, like your friends list and parties.
- Enhanced Spotify connectivity using the new Quick Menu, which will allow you to more easily queue up tunes while you play.
- Hitting the share button will now bring up a streamlined menu that allows 140-second video uploads to Twitter instead of just 10-second uploads.
- You can organize your apps and games into folders on the PS4 home screen.
- All PS4 consoles are now enabled with high-dynamic range (or HDR) support, meaning games and movies can look better on TVs that support the feature.
- The ability to transfer all your data to a new PS4 Pro via a wired connection when the console comes out on November 10.
Users will be particularly excited, now that the update allows 140-seconds uploads to Twitter, rather than the previous the 10-second video limit, now you have time to showcase your skills. Additionally, Sony will also provide a couple of other small improvements to the trophy system and user profiles.
